Architecting materials for extremal stiffness, yield and buckling strength

This paper proposes a methodology for architecting microstructures with extremal sti ff ness, yield, and buckling strength using topology optimization. The optimized microstructures reveal an

Experimental verification of a novel hierarchical lattice material with superior buckling strength

Recently, a systematic approach for the design of lattice materials with extreme buckling strength has led to optimized hierarchical lattice materials with unprecedented load carrying capacity. This

Buckling-constrained topology optimization using feature-driven optimization method

Structural stability has attracted increasing attention in topology optimization because of the buckling effect under compression load. In this work, the feature-driven optimization method is

e-Workshop on design and analysis of non-classical architectured materials

While homogenization of periodic linear elastic structures is now a well-known procedure when the stiffness of the material varies inside fixed bounds, no homogenization formula is known which



Buckling strength topology optimization of 2D periodic materials based on linearized bifurcation analysis

3D Plate‐Lattices: An Emerging Class of Low‐Density Metamaterial Exhibiting Optimal Isotropic Stiffness

Due to their porous internal structure, the potential impact of the new metamaterials reported here goes beyond lightweight engineering, including applications for heat-exchange, thermal insulation, acoustics, and biomedical engineering.

Numerical investigation of stiffness and buckling response of simple and optimized infill structures

This study systematically investigates stiffness and buckling response of finite structures consisting of repeated unit cells of a reference truss lattice microstructure and a topology optimized

Mechanical metamaterials at the theoretical limit of isotropic elastic stiffness

This work identifies a material geometry that achieves the Hashin–Shtrikman upper bounds on isotropic elastic stiffness, and finds that stiff but well distributed networks of plates are required to transfer loads efficiently between neighbouring members.

Design of manufacturable 3D extremal elastic microstructure

Length scale and manufacturability in density-based topology optimization

Since its original introduction in structural design, density-based topology optimization has been applied to a number of other fields such as microelectromechanical systems, photonics, acoustics and

Topology optimization of periodic microstructures with a penalization of highly localized buckling modes

The problem of determining highly localized buckling modes in perfectly periodic cellular microstructures of infinite extent is addressed. A double scale asymptotic technique is applied to the
